So... my brother ended up wrecking his '04 GPGT, rearended somebody and damaged the front too much to repair. (lot of damage for a low speed hit!) So we found another one, mixed all the good parts and have some leftover. Then my mother needed a car, so we got ANOTHER '04 GP GT... so I still have two 3800s in the family to work on. Did LIM gaskets and tuneup on both, have a good spare motor from the first one that wrecked (just did LIM gaskets in that too), so if anybody needs anything, we have a few parts. Got rid of the shell from the first '04 but still have some stuff leftover, misc bits and pieces, full stock exhaust...
Had some issues with the CAN bus freaking out after a bad stereo adapter, replaced it and all is well. That CAN bus is really sensitive!
